Anthony turns up in Caroline’s bedroom one night bearing waffle fries, a beat-up book, and a homework assignment they’re supposed to do together: explore Walt Whitman’s poem “Song of Myself”. Chronically sick, Caroline hasn’t been to school in a while… and can’t ever remember meeting some kid named Anthony, which dials up both her suspicions and her “snark-o-meter.” But as the two get to know each other through Whitman’s powerful verse, they finally learn of the deeper mystery which brought them together. I AND YOU is a valentine to youth, love, and the strange beauty of human connectedness.

Community Conversation: “Misfitting In”
February 11, 2016 | 7:15–7:55pm

Every teenager feels like they don’t fit in at some point. Even adults feel that way occasionally, being “alone in a room full of people.” The need to be a part of group is instinctual; it’s survival. But what happens when someone genuinely feels they don’t fit in? Join us for a conversation about assessing the social situations and anxieties that can make acceptance difficult, and ways to empower both parents and teenagers to address and overcome these obstacles with positive tactics.
